You can purchase a IDE to SATA adapter on the web.

Just a note:
When you go to SATA, you run into the issue of having the SATA drivers on a floppy or CD when you are reinstalling you OS. WinXP or Vista or Linux will not see a SATA hard drive without the drivers.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

After Windows 10 update, why doesn't my computer communicate with the printer?

Suzanne, you may have to reinstall and set up the printer, again. The best place is the website of the printer manufacturer. Look for downloads, updates, or such words. This should not cost any money. Follow exactly the install directions. If still an issue remains, seek support from the techies at the printer manufacturer site, likely everyone is having the issue, and they would want to fix the issue.

Fix 5a error brother dcp195c printer error 5a code

For the community I have exactly the same problem. I bought two of these MBs this week, and 2.8 Gig Pentium Ds. The barebones kit I bought came with a SATA HD and upon completion of very careful assembly, it would hang with a 5A displayed. I tried flashing to the newest BIOS, no change. I had four brand new SATA HD drives laying around and I tried them all, no change. Like I said, I bought two of these MBs sp after several hours, I installed the second MB, no change. I've been working on this thing for 10 hours now, what a struggle, I've never had this much trouble trying to get a system to run. I suspect that putting and IDE drive in the system would allow it to run as mentioned above, but like I said, I have four SATA drives. I'm very surprised that I have two MBs with the same problem, it hangs on 5A and won't configure, it doesn't see the SATA HD. It will boot from the DVD drive if I disconnect the HD - but that does no good at all, obviously. If anyone knows anything about this that might help I will also be grateful for your input. In my case if I can't get it working this weekend, on Monday, all of this stuff goes back to the retailer. Looking forward to any of you smart folks knowing what's up with this.

My Dell Computer says it has to shut down, then reboots and comes up with "hard disk failure", I push F1 and it loads back up ok.

First open cpu cabinet and reconnect all connection to harddisk .
Also refix RAM memory.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then check your harddisk is detected proeprly.
aslo go to boot option and set first boot device as your harddisk.
Some times because of bed SATA or IDE cable is detected in bios but it not boot up.
So change sata or IDE cable .

Let me know if you need more assistanse.

Generally changing the cylinder (blade and developer) Initialize td and id sensor usually it is solved. If it is not thus it proves the following thing: press point and numeral (enter) simultaneously for more than 10 seconds until this clear the service call. If the problem persists can be the hard disk, change.
